Activate USB WiFi on startup on Fedora Core 4


I have set up a Zonet ZEW2501 USB WiFi adapter on Fedora Core 4 x86_64. This uses a zd1211 driver. My question as a Linux newbie is how would I set it up to activate on startup? It's not seen in the Network Device Control GUI.

Well I created the file ifcfg-wlan0 and saved it in these 3 places.

/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default
/etc/sysconfig/networking-scripts

Here's the contents of ifcfg-wlan0.

DEVICE=wlan0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
HWADDR=00:05:31:6B:27:F7
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=yes
DHCP_HOSTNAME=localhost.localdomain
IPV6INIT=yes


It seems to startup at boot and acquire an ip address. And it can now be seen in the Network Device Control. But it's still not working. After boot up I can type dhclient wlan0 from console and it works fine. Or from the Network Device Control, I have to activate it and then it will work. I may be way off here. What else do I need, or do I need to go a totally different route?
